Mercedes Del Carmen's story

Mercedes del Carmen is 50 years old and lives in Masaya. She has her own business selling fruit and vegetables, which she has run for twenty two years. She has always worked selling vegetables at the local market where she has her own stall. There are four people in her family - her and her husband and their two children, who work for her and help her to look after the business. For this season, she is turning to Ceprodel for a loan to be able to invest further in her business. With the loan she will be able to buy vegetables, potatoes, carrots, beetroot, bananas, lemons, oranges, malanga, wheat, onions, tomatoes etc. This will benefit both her customers and her family whom she loves dearly.
